    Hi! We have our vacation planned for Aug 2024. We are staying a Bay Lake Tower. On check in day we would like to enjoy lunch at Steakhouse 71. We have the dining plan. Curious if the Steakhouse 71 To Go would be a quick service or table service credit?

    Hey there Julie, it's wonderful to have you here!

    I'm so glad to be able to answer your question here at planDisney, because we just stayed at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort this past month and definitely made a point of having lunch at Steakhouse 71 more than once; I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our meal here and I'm glad you've chosen this to kick off your Disney adventures. 

    • When I checked during our meal the host and our server both confirmed that whether dining in or ordering Steakhouse 71 To Go, it would be counted as a Table-Service meal for guests with the Disney Dining Plan. (Policies and offerings may be subject to change without prior notice, so I always recommend checking again to confirm if this remains consistent by the time of your visit this summer.)
    In my opinion, having experienced what it's like ordering items to go to enjoy within our room I wouldn't necessarily recommend it over the experience of being able within the restaurant itself. (Personally I found that you just might miss some of the presentation with the way that the items are packaged, and you'll want to choose carefully between the things that may or may not travel well all the way up to your room at Bay Lake Tower.) We both found that from the service to the way the meals were composed, dining at Steakhouse 71 itself was a far superior experience; you don't want to miss our favorite lunch menu items that include Bacon & Eggs, Lump Crab Cakes and some of the best salads we've had on Walt Disney World Resort property!

    I hope this helps, Julie! Don't hesitate to come back to us again here at planDisney for any other tips or advice - culinary or otherwise. I hope you have a fantastic stay at Bay Lake Tower just before it undergoes a massive yearlong room refurbishment from September 2024 to September 2025!

    Here's to starting off your trip in one of the most delicious ways possible!
